Connie Ferguson goes back to work 6 weeks after husband’s death

South African actress Connie Ferguson has returned to work for the first time since the death of her husband Shona Ferguson.

The actress and co-founder of Ferguson Films has returned to fulfil the promise she made when she buried Shona to keep his legacy alive.

Shona died on 30 July at Milpark Hospital due to Covid-19 related complications.

Connie took to Instagram expressing her gratitude to her employees for keeping the vehicle moving in her absence.

She posted a brief video on her Instagram showing her office filled with balloons and flowers to welcome her.

“Team #thequeen #fergusonfilms, I love you all so much! Thank you for today.”

She said it felt good to be back at work and was ready to secure more wins.

“It’s good to do what you love knowing it’s for a purpose bigger than yourself. I’m grateful that we continue to walk this journey together, and all our wins and victories are to the glory of the almighty God. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,” said Connie.

Connie has been mourning and observing all traditions she used to practice with Shona including the ‘Sunday Carpet’ when they would just lay down on the carpet and talk about everything and anything.

During Shona’s memories service, Connie promised to keep the ‘Sho(w) going on’

“If you think Ferguson Films is great… know that Ferguson Films is great because that is my husband’s legacy and it is going to continue going from strength to strength if I have anything to do with it!” she vowed.
